LOS ANGELES, June 15 (UPI) -- Rush Hour and Key & Peele alum Justin Hires has joined the cast of the re-boot of the action-adventure drama MacGyver, CBS announced.
The stand-up comedian will play Wilt Bozer, the titular hero's ambitious roommate.
Lucas Till and George Eads will also star in the show, which is slated to air Fridays, starting this fall.
"Casting Justin was a no-brainer... comedy, action, adventure... the guy can do it all," executive producer Peter Lenkov said in a statement Tuesday. "We are beyond excited to have him join us on MacGyver."
Richard Dean Anderson played the resourceful scientist/government agent Angus MacGyver on the original show, which ran 1985-92.
